Jon Jordan Agency a Valued Benefactor to Children’s Programming

Darke County Center for the Arts...

Jon Jordan Agency has once again donated funds to sponsor Darke County Center for the Arts’ Family Theatre Series programming. “Generous benefactors are the key to DCCA’s ability to present quality programming for children at an affordable ticket price of $5,” claims DCCA Executive Director, Julie Strait.  “We applaud and are grateful for Jon Jordan Agency’s commitment to providing opportunities for youngsters in our community to learn and grow through the arts.”

According to Strait, DCCA’s Family Theatre Series attracts a wide-ranging audience, which includes many preschool children enjoying their first theater experience, as well as senior citizens who enjoy the shows’ strong depiction of traditional values.  Programs take place at St. Clair Memorial Hall in Greenville on Sunday’s at 2:00 P.M. 

Still to come in the 2011-2012 season, The House At Pooh Corner on March 25th features our dear friends from the Hundred Acre Woods.  Winnie the Pooh, Christopher Robin, Piglet, Eyeore, Rabbit, Tigger, Kanga and Roo, are deeply rooted in memory for generations of children, and will spring to life in this delightfully production.    Theatre IV’s reproduction of the classic A.A. Milne book uses creative costuming and props in a program that inspires children to use their imagination and creativity for endless hours of wholesome, electronic-free, play time.

The final show of the season is Wizard of Oz scheduled for Sunday, May 6, at 2:00 pm.   American Family Theatre’s lavish production of this perennial favorite will lead families on an adventurous journey with Dorothy through the magical Land of Oz as she and her friends discover the magic that lies within themselves. 

Tickets to both upcoming productions are $5 and are available by contacting DCCA at (937) 547-0908 or DCCA@CenterForArts.net.  Tickets may be purchased at Readmore’s Hallmark in Greenville, Worch Memorial Public Library in Versailles one month prior to the shows, and will also be available at the door the day of the performance.  For more information contact DCCA at (937) 547-0908 or e-mail dcca@centerforarts.net.
